Description

This image won an APOD on 7th October 2021.

This is a Telescope Live pro-data processed in PixInsight 1.8.8-9, an exercise to see how processing good data is (mine is usually absolutely worse). 

I've chosen this beautiful field since it offers some interesting subjects in the same frame: 

NGC 6559, a star-forming region located at a distance of about 5000 light-years from Earth, in the constellation of Sagittarius, showing both emission (red) and reflection (bluish) regions.
IC 1274 and IC 1275 gaseous nebula, IC 1274 lying on the near-surface of the Lynds 227 (L227) molecular cloud.
IC 4685 star lies in the central area of the complex emission/reflection region, illuminating its surrounding area.
IC 4684, a smaller emission nebula on the left side of the image.
